In Match No. 19 of Odisha Cricket League 2020-21, Odisha Tigers will be up against Odisha Cheetahs at the Barabati Stadium in Cuttack.
Both teams are coming into this game on the back of a loss and will be desperate to bounce back. Both Odisha Tigers and Odisha Cheetahs have been pretty inconsistent in Odisha Cricket League 2020-21.
Odisha Tigers started off with two wins from their first three games and were looking good. However, things turned for the worse and they have now lost three games in a row. It is the batting that has disappointed and the Debasish Samantray-led side will hope to arrest the slide.
On the other hand, Odisha Cheetahs have three wins and as many losses from six games. They started with two wins before losing three out of their last four games. Despite that, they find themselves in the top half of the table with 12 points. But they need to get some consistency.

The pitch at the Barabati Stadium in Cuttack is a decent one to bat on. However, it is the bowlers who have had a bigger say in Odisha Cricket League this season.
The average score batting first is 133 and teams batting first have had more success. Hence, not a lot is expected to change for this game.
Runs on the board could be the way to go for the captain winning the toss. Moreover, a score of 145-150 could well end up being a match-winning one.
